Revamp my tank

I have a boring 37 gallon tank. It looks nice and has a good community, but what could i do to make it entertaining? Cool stocking and look, like bigger and more interesting fish?

Got a pic of it? Live plants is always my first suggestion if you don't have them already. You could also try a biotope tank.

What's your stocking? +1 on the live plants or area themed tanks. Always make things interesting

You could add another school of tetras and more Corys or maybe a few loaches. What's the tank look like ? If you went planted with your tank I can say it would look more interesting and active.

If you restart your tank a tiger barb/convict tank can be really cool. Kribs can often hold their own pretty well too. Snakeskin barbs are another nice option if you'd like something a little less common than tigers.

On a completely different note about a puffer?

It won't let me upload a picture, it says I've exceeded my quota. Anyway, u really want to change everything. Would it be possible to get a pair or a single convict cichlid? Maybe a dozen tiger barbs, half albino, also? Then maybe a bn place and a gourmi?

Yeah you could do a pair of convicts with the tiger barbs. I'd skip the gourami though as there's a chance the barbs would shred it up.

If I did convicts, then I couldn't do Kribs? And in thinking about getting a 10 gallon tank just for a puffer!

Keyholes are one of the most peaceful fish there are. Tiger barbs would just stress them out and make them hide all the time.
